It's my birthday

Saturday, July 22, 2006


We did not do anything much today. I guess I am too busy preparing the sermon for tomorrow.

For the coming year of my life, I shall make Psalm 139 my song, my hymn, to live my life for Him in all I think, say and do.

Psalm 139
God's Omnipresence and Omniscience.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.


1O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
2You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
.........You understand my thought from afar.
3You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
.........And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
4Even before there is a word on my tongue,
.........Behold, O LORD, You know it all.
5You have enclosed me behind and before,
.........And laid Your hand upon me.
6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
.........It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
7Where can I go from Your Spirit?
.........Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
.........If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
9If I take the wings of the dawn,
.........If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10Even there Your hand will lead me,
.........And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
.........And the light around me will be night,"
12Even the darkness is not dark to You,
.........And the night is as bright as the day
.........Darkness and light are alike to You.
13For You formed my inward parts;
.........You wove me in my mother's womb.
14I will give thanks to You,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
.........Wonderful are Your works,
.........And my soul knows it very well.
15My frame was not hidden from You,
.........When I was made in secret,
.........And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
.........And in Your book were all written
.........The days that were ordained for me,
.........When as yet there was not one of them.
17How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
.........How vast is the sum of them!
18If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand
.........When I awake, I am still with You.
19O that You would slay the wicked, O God;
.........Depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.
20For they speak against You wickedly,
.........And Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD?
.........And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22I hate them with the utmost hatred;
.........They have become my enemies.
23Search me, O God, and know my heart;
.........Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
24And see if there be any hurtful way in me,
.........And lead me in the everlasting way.

  5. Thanks Doug! It was ... we went out for dinner and as luck would have it, we happen upon a hot air balloon. A group of people were handling it as part of a marketing event for a local hotel chain. We got a ride!! It was awesome! Well, not so much a ride per se ... just going up and coming down since it is not legal to fly around Malaysian skies it seems with a hot air balloon but nonetheless, we got on one and that for sure counts!
